Avast! Internet Security 5.0.507

avast! Internet Security provides complete computer security. It is designed for people that shop and bank via the internet or store sensitive data on their computers. Internet Security provides three new security features not in the Free Antivirus that work together to ensure that your banking, financial, and sensitive data is protected from hackers. The Silent Firewall provides nearly automatic control of inbound and outbound traffic with a white list of over 50,000 applications, digital signatures from renowned vendors, and coordinated operation with avast protective shields. The new antispam filter makes keeping the spam out easy with its single control interface. It identifies more than 98 percent of spam with near-zero false positives. Sandbox process virtualization creates a virtual computer to test suspect files and insulate the real computer from any damage caused by active malware. These features complement the increased efficiency of the new avast antivirus and antispyware engine. Memory requirements for the engine have been cut in half and scanning is 40 percent faster, saving both time and computer resources. Complete rootkit protection includes real-time detection to ward off initial installation, on-demand scanning and boot-time scans. The user friendly 5.0 has a new interface with easy-to-adjust settings, a context-sensitive help menu and graphs showing ongoing protection activities. Users can set the time and conditions for complete scans, with avast even waking up their computer from hibernation for midnight scans before putting it back to bed. The two major pathways for malware into a computer are the web and email, with around 80 percent of new infections caught through internet browsing. avast! provides separate defensive strategies for each.
